    If you do, do you think they believe the lies they tell people. I know two guys who make things up, absurd stories about who they know, what they did, how much money they have, etc.

    Do you know anybody like this?

    We're not talking about exaggerations here, but blatantly false lies told with what comes across as the utmost sincerity. I wonder if these people actually believe their lies, or if they're telling them just as a joke, without ever acknowledging that what they're saying is complete bullshit.

    Some examples of these types of lies would be..."I just bought a 5 million dollar home in Aspen"...."I'm being considered for the starring role in a new Speilberg film"...."I'm partnering with Bill Gates to buy the Houston Rockets."

    What do you make of these people if you know any.

    Oh yeah. I used to call him out all the time in college. Apparently he thought I was the worst person on the planet because of it.

    Had a friend who lied about how many pieces of pizza he ate when he was hanging out with a girl.

    Can you go into detail about he would say? The idea that he thought you were the worst is hilarious.

    My best friend.

    I know how to deal with his lies, and often play along for my own personal amusement.

    Pretty sure he said 4, and as our friend we knew he'd never eat half a pizza. It was mind blowing to us, he basically lied about the entire night. I mean we were asking ridiculous questions (what was she wearing? where was everyone sitting at the table?) but the fact he lied about everything was hilarious.

    I'm just unimpressed that he can't even eat half a pizza. I once ate 3 extra large pizzas in one hour.

    Fuck yes and im not sure what to make of him.

    Some examples.

    He said he shot a deer with his grandfathers sniper rifle from 5 km's away.

    Said he walked home drunk from the bar 35 kms in the pitch dark and a wolf was stalking him. That he killed the wolf with a rock to the dome.

    Shows videos on youtube of a guy playing guitar close up and says its him. But won't ever play in front of people.

    I've heard he's a recluse now even though he has 5 kids.
